After picking up passengers from Battle Harbour in Southern Labrador, Canada, this ferry named the MV Iceberg Hunter, leaves the dock. This ferry has been approved by the coast guard and transports visitors back and forth to Battle Harbour in the summer months.From the middle of June to the middle of September, tourists board the ferry for a one hour trip to Battle Harbour where they can tour the historic fishing village. The fog has settled in around the harbour, which is fairly common, and the ferry ensures that their high powered lights are in full operation for the return trip to St. Mary's Habour in Southern Labrador.Weather can sometimes either stop or delay the ferry from making its journey and on occasion they have to wait for the season to begin due to the pack ice in the area. If the fog becomes to thick or the weather pattern quickly changes as it is known to do, there are unique accommodations available on Battle Harbour.The wharves around Battle Harbour have all been renovated and extended to provide plenty of space for any visitors that come ashore via their own vessels. Another way to reach Battle Harbour is by air, but the ferry service provides the most convenient method for a majority of the tourists visiting the historic village in Southern Labrador.Wharf and ferry on a foggy evening in the historic fishing village of Battle Harbour situated on Battle Island at the entrance to the St Lewis Inlet, Viking Trail, Trails to the Vikings, Southern Labrador, Labrador, Atlantic Canada, Canada.
